Bringing university to Bonaire
Milan Jezic von Gesseneck appreciates that Bonaire’s innovation pilot project is bringing university to island and directly supporting development of capacity-building and education. For higher education it is bringing possibility to work directly with WUR as well as with other mainly Dutch universities. It is opening doors not just for having different universities to be present on the island, but also for implementing the most modern way of education, having three pillars blended learning education. By having part-time EU high quality professors of different specialisations on the island, and mixing that with learning-by-doing and distance learning, Bonaire is really getting the most efficient, highest quality education on the island. At the same time, this approach should be implemented not only at the university level, but also on other levels, including professional level and long-life learning.
